I'm nineteen, living in a shitty and boring town. I've got no direction. Depression and anxiety have a powerful hold on most of my life. I'm enrolled in my local community college and have no idea what I want to study. I've failed my last two semesters because I can't bring myself to work without any direction.

Soon my friends will be leaving town. Four are leaving to transfer to new schools, one is moving to Europe, one is a drug addict who will likely be stuck in this town forever.

I've got no job, no school, no plan for the future, and soon, no friends. I don't know what to do. I think I'm asking here because I need someone to just TELL me what to do, then I can do it. If someone TELLS me to major in something, then I might feel obligated to because someone wants me to. But I have no idea what to do or what I should do.

Frankly, I'm terrified. I'm scared I'm going to be stuck here forever and never leave and fail or become homeless. If I fail this next semester I'll be on academic probation...

Please, anything. I need to do something. I was considering just running away to Portland or LA or something and just getting a shitty job in a coffee shop until I decide to go back to school, but I don't even know where to begin that plan. Not to mention I'm not sure I could do it.

Anything helps. Thanks in advance.

Bump. I know this is really vague and complex but I just need some support right now.

Hoo, boy, do I know that feel. I'd say get a hobby with a clear end goal that you work towards whenever you can. For example, if your hobby is carpentry, come up with the plans to build a treehouse and spend some time working on it little by little. The key here is to have a goal every day or week or however often you feel its necessary to work on it. (Today I'm going to build this section of the guardrails! Today I'm going to build the door! etc.)

Honest, hard work creating or doing something is extremely fulfilling, it works wonders on depression.

What do you enjoy doing?

>>18005068
Playing music, mostly. But I don't even enjoy that very much. My depression kind of dampens everything, nothing is as fun as it used to be.

As for work, I can really do anything in an office.

In all honesty the best I can see is myself working some random jobs around town then moving away and becoming something like a bartender or waiter or something.

>>18005019
I really need to do this more, especially now that I'm on medication. Hopefully things start looking up.

>>18004894
Is there anything you like doing or have always wanted to do? Even if it sounds hard or unrealistic.
>>
>>18005088
I've always wanted to work in a recording studio. Really any role, audio engineer, receptionist, anything. I have no idea how to get into this profession though.
>>
I was where you are now. Join the military. Strive for something.

Pick infantry and see the world.

Good thing the internet is full of resources to help you learn how. Research that, figure out what you'd like to do most, find out what you need to do and set a path to that goal. Screw anything that gets in the way of whatever plan you make, don't get yourself trapped into something you don't want to do. You're in real need of a purpose and goal to work towards in life.

Get a job, do anything

I'm a bit of a pussy, would you still recommend this?
>>
I'm not sure where the problem is. There are plenty of audio engineering schools in the US. You just need to apply to one. Happiness is a constant struggle, you won't just snap out of it and be happy.
